On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Weaving a life

We enjoyed crispy cool weather today with a bright blue sunny sky.  Sun, in fact, is anticipated for an entire week, not a good forecast when you're worried about drought.

I can't wait to get to class tomorrow, get the first lesson, practice in class and sink my teeth into the homework. This is a beginning drawing class where I'm not expected to know anything yet, a fresh start.

Today I walked around the house and gathered up some baskets. I thought it would be easy to draw woven lines since everything is totally predictable even though each pattern is unique. Wrong! After the fourth attempt I gave up, it's an impossible task as this stage of my understanding.  I need that class. I need a teacher. I need instruction. I need help!

  1. For me, nothing is easy to draw and takes extreme concentration which is difficult when you feel exhausted ...there are some who have have other methods of working---but for me it is never very fast. I don't think I am alone here .....
